Re: Old School Parking brake fixture for stretched cable

Yep, the two nuts are used to adjust and tight the J-hook and go either side of solid part at the end where the hook is now. The J-hook needs to be between the studs to pull on the cable.

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

The Ammeter issue depends on if you have a Std or Dx model. The Standard had an Ammeter, the Deluxe have a Batt Indicator.

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

In your case I think it would be much easier to use the voltage reducer Ford used when they switched to 12 volts. It drops the voltage to all the gauges with just the one unit and connects between...

Re: Question on flathead oil canister filter housing

They are called by-pass filters because the oil going to the filter "by-passes" the engine and is returned to the oil galley or oil pan. So, you want to limit the amount of oil by-passing the...

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

What coil are you using? If possible you need to change the polarity of the coil to match the car polarity. In your case ignition switch to + side of coil and - side of coil to the distributor.

Re: Electrical verification 32 Ford

Sounds like the cutout may be bad (new does not mean good). Check the terminal on the cutout to the ground on the generator, there shouldn't be any continuity with the engine not running. If there...

Re: 40 Flathead to 1965 MUSTANG Trans

Is there a specific reason for this transmission selection? A 4 speed with overdrive (or any transmission with OD) would seem like a much better option.

Re: Speed bleeders for 1949 F1

And you need to start over on the brake bleeding as there will be air in the lines. No way you can possibly bleed brakes without constantly checking the MC fluid level.

Re: What is the Application of these OS Valves?

Chevy valves are sometimes preferred when using a high lift cam with a smaller base circle. They are a bit longer and take up the gap. They also come in 1.6 inch which may (or may not) increase...
